Burl Laxton put a stop to that nonsense. That was the best thing that ever happened to Bradshaw.
Tomcat didn't have to many road stops after he kissed that telephone pole.
Funny how you would mention one of the most crooked people in the town of Bradshaw put a stop to the nonsense. Truth be known is that he just got too old to cause the nonsense and probably stopped it for no other reason than that. Anyone remember when he and his buddy Isom crossed Clarence Shelton? Most of ole Burl's plumbing had to be redone thanks to that little incident. At least you could take Tomcat at face value which is a hell of a lot more than you can say about Burl Laxton,(a.k.a. Buford Pusser) cleaning up Bradshaw. At least that's who it seems you want him to sound like.

My Grandmother opened the ElRancho and also owned the Miss America Beauty Shop. One of my very first memories is of sitting in the ElRancho when I was 2 or 3. I also vividly remember the Theater my uncle Absalom owned. Bradshaw had some bustle to it then. I've lived in Akron just about my whole life but Bradshaw was a big part of my life when I was very young.

Its a good thing the kids have a new school, of course...but what about the town they live in, or pass by going to school?!!! Its ashame, an embarresssssment!! When we grew up going to the town of Bradshaw was a big thing!! All the stores open, people walking down the streets, shoppping, talking, it was a beautiful place!! It breaks my heart to see it now! Now people drive miles to shop...when we used to interact with our friends, neighbors, spend money in our town...someone said how Lacy Wright at L&R used to say write up a ticket...thats what our town used to be...everyone looking out for eachother, an being able to trust that ticket would get paid!! Adults looking out for everyone's kids, an telling ur parents if u did sumthing, an ur parents knew before u even got home, or came an got ur butt! I used to hate that, now I understand it...an would give anything, if that was how life was, today!! I wish I could get the old run down buildings back to life an get life back into the town of Bradshaw...but its sad to say, we can't get the same life back into the people, like the people back in those days!! an what people are left are to afraid of the people that will rob u while standing talking to u! Its the same place I grew up when looking on the map, but it is so run down, its almost like a ghost town!! It hurts to look at it now!! No more picking up people walking, giving them a ride down the road, bc now u dont no what that person is going to do! Back then if someone needed a ride, they'd give u a ride all the way to the place u were going! Pick up ur kids after school, or after school practice for whatever sport u stayed after for...with practically whoever picked u up...now u can't trust ur kids getting into the car with some of the people! Bradshaw was home, an it felt like home...not anymore, its a wonderful memory, but just that...a MEMORY of what it once was!

I came to Bradshaw in 1974 when my Grandpa Ed Blevins had a stroke and my Granny Tish was also in the hospital in Welch. Granny had been a midwife and delivered many babies. She also sewed for folks and made the cheerleaders uniforms. I met a young man who lived just below my grandparents home. His name was Robert Payne. Does anyone know him or his whereabouts? I had quite a crush on him. Does anyone know of my Blevins family?
